Bio:
I have only just started reading the Fan Fiction and it is really good. I was thinking of writing one myself when I get up the nerve. I am 54 years old and live in Portugal. I started reading HP in 2001 when a friend gave me PS/SS while I was recuperating in hospital. I have since read all the books and found Mugglenet a year ago. I really enjoy reading all the editorials and I have also submitted some ideas to the Magic Quill story. I'm just another fan. I hope my being so old puts you off! I'm young at heart!

Summary: A new person comes into Harry's life; one who has ties to his parents, and to his enemies. The story starts in the summer after 3rd year and becomes AU (but just barely) at that point. Pairings: SBOC, a smattering of HPHG, some RLNT later on...

Hungry for GOOD fan fiction? Give this story a try! It will satisfy the avid fan fiction reader's most voracious appetite. It is chock full of the basic fan fiction food groups: It's got drama, romance, angst, snarky banter, mystery, Quidditch, humor, new love, old love rekindled, introspection, action...
So go on, sample a little bit... I KNOW you won't walk away feeling empty!

I really like this fic! I'm glad someone decided to give Sirius a chance for some love and affection. I truly hope the 2 of them get it together and are able to give themselves(and Harry)some much needed support.

Summary: Dumbledore is gone, or is he? Harry feels the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, but he is soon to learn that his brooding nature and desire to face his fate alone may be his greatest weakness. It is his emotions, or rather his capacity for emotion that makes him strong, and his relationships his greatest source of strength.

When the summer begins and he faces a fortnight with the Dursleys everything he knows, or rather thinks he knows comes into question. Can he... should he do this all alone? And is he anywhere near ready?

Hogwarts is to be re-opened, the Ministry officially endorsing it as the safest possible place to be. As his birthday approaches there are monumental surprises in store for Harry. Who is he really? And what about his family, who came before his mother and father? Why is the Potter name so famous, and yet so unknown?

Encouraged not to run off to face his fate he returns to Hogwarts for his final year, but surprises abound at the school as well.

Can Harry become the wizard he needs to be to face the Dark Lord? Will he let the people he respects and love really help him? And what of help from unexpected sources; sources he might never trust?

I love this story! I really approve of using the chocolate frog cards as I have an idea that this might come up in book 7. I like the way Harry is growing up too: his relationship with his aunt and the way he got back together with Ginny. I'm also curious as to what will happen to our (friend) Draco and his mother. Will they continue in the jungle? Will someone come after them? I'm really looking forward to what's going to happen in the next chapter with the lock box. Congratulations.

Author's Response: Thank you.
I love this story too... of course that\'s what keeps me writing it!
I would be so excited to see a Chocolate Frog Cards used by JKR in the real thing, as I have used it in this story... it would be so cool to have come up with a unique idea that was just like JKR.
The way Harry is maturing is a definite important theme in this story, I am so glad you like it.
It is also nice to know you are pleased with what is happening to Draco... I don\'t think I am giving too much away if I say that you can expect that sub-plot to continue for a while and eventually merge back into the main plot.
Next chapter is sort of a romantic reunion, so it should cause warm fuzzies in the romantic at heart... and yes... Harry will open the lock-box.
Thanks for the review and I hope to hear from you again next chapter.

 

Summary: This is an alternate version of Book Seven. Harry reluctantly returns to Hogwarts to train with a new DADA teacher, one appointed in specifically for Harry in Dumbledore's will. As the rest of the Wizard World reacts to Dumbledore's defeat, Harry develops the skills he needs to fulfill the Prophecy--including mastery of the Kedavra curse.

Mysteries are explored along the way, particularly the "missing 24 hours" from 1981--the span of time between Hagrid taking Baby Harry from the ruins of Godric's Hollow on Halloween Night, and his arrival to hand off Baby Harry on Privet Drive the following night. The Veil Room in the Department of Mysteries is also revisited. A traitor is uncovered, and Dumbledore's wisdom comes into question. And even when all goes as planned, things are not all they seem.

Please, continue your story! I've been reading it for months now and it is very good. I just love the bit about Draco which I read just now and the rest up until this last chapter. I think you did a great job with Ondossi's character: just love her! And it's nice to have Sirius back. The phoenix bits are also fabulous, so please don't stop now.

Author's Response: No worries--38 is coming along nicely.

A Stolen Past by nuw255
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 428]

Summary: Past Featured StoryFifteen-year-old Harry Potter wakes up in his cupboard under the stairs at number four, Privet Drive with no memory of the past five years of his life. What happened to his memory? What do his strange dreams mean? And most importantly, how will he survive in a school for incurably criminal boys?


This is primarily a mystery, with a bit of shippiness thrown in here and there. Of course, if I told you WHO is involved in the shippiness, that would ruin part of the mystery, wouldn’t it?


This story takes place immediately after OotP (and thus disregards HBP).

I want to congratulate you on this wonderful story. I would never have guessed that Umbridge is behind Harry's perdicament! I also want to see how this turns out; how are you going to get HER to undo the spell(s)? Waiting for the next installment.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it. But what makes you think Umbridge will ever undo her spells? *Laughs maniacally*

A Past Reclaimed by nuw255
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 1455]

Summary: Sequel to A Stolen Past. Please read that story first, as this one really won’t make sense if you don’t.

Harry Potter has rejoined the Wizarding world after a year-long absence, but still has no memory of his time at Hogwarts. Will he ever get his memory back? Will he be able to pass his classes without it? And most importantly, will he ever be able to defeat Lord Voldemort? Read on as the last of the mysteries introduced in A Stolen Past are finally revealed.

This is a story of friendship and mystery, with a healthy dose of H/G thrown in for good measure.
